In the fast-paced area we live in, we seek to provide a space for our middle and high school students to just be themselves. Whether we are playing games at church, out on an adventure, taking on a mission project, talking about challenges or wrestling with matters of faith, or meeting in a small group, it's in a caring and safe environment.
There is a deep commitment to helping others. Every fall we participate in the annual CROP Walk for Hunger. We volunteer at local mission agencies, shop for Christmas gifts for students at a nearby school who might not otherwise receive gifts. Some of our teens tutor elementary school children as part of our Monday Night Tutoring Program.
And sometimes we go on adventures...apple picking, laser tag, or bowling are some of the ways youth can unwind.
In July, many of our senior highs participate in the Tri-Cities Work Camp in Petersburg, VA.
Mission opportunities for middle schoolers are reviewed and planned.
